A couple of weeks ago, you asked me some very important questions:
My problem is I am bad at reading people. I feel like I’m getting mixed signals from this guy I hang out with from my dorm. Like sometimes he asks me to chill and then he’s totally unavailable. What is he trying to say? Is he trying to say anything? Why is this a problem?

Dear Thoughtful Penn Stater,
A few days ago, you asked me a question that really hit home: Why do you think cute (and normal) girls don’t get approached by guys? If we’re being honest, I think I’m a pretty girl and I don’t think I’m one of those “psycho chicks,” but I never really get much attention from guys, as in guys don’t ask for my number, things like that. Why do you think this happens? What should I do to be more approachable?

Men especially, can be sorted into very specific groups once they become comfortable in their own skin.
Serendipity: the phenomenon of finding value in something without intending to search for it. If I had to rest my finger on a single reason that I am a part of Valley today, I suppose I’d have to point to serendipity.
